Ogunquit Beach translates from the Abenaki language as "beautiful place by the sea." It is an apt name for the resort that offers sandy beaches framed by cliffs along the water. Swimmers will want to head to the river lagoon with a sandbar that indicates shallow water ideal for wading and swimming.

  • Although we love it in summer, the fall was beautiful. Nothing more perfect than a three mile walk with sea air, waves and blue skies. 
  • Nice walking beach for all. Views are endless. Sunsets/Sunrises a joy to watch. Late fall is great time to visit as beach very quiet! 
  • Enjoyed the walk to the beach & on the beach. I went during the off season not anything open on the beach area. Enjoyed watching the surfers. Disappointed that there were not any sea shells.

  • Super long beach, very nice white sand. It's like two beaches in one, at low tide you can walk 200 yards to the ocean, at high tide, it leaves just a skinny strip of white sand. Parking costs money but it's worth spending a few hours here.
  • gr8 for sun rises. To find a parking lot may be pain, just look around or being patient.
  • Beautiful beach, crowded during high tide but always room regardless - worth the visit
  • 20$ parking. But free 30 min stays to see the view and go. Water is too cold for swimming but wadding is fun
  • This is a beautiful beach even during the colder months of the year! I visited on a sunny but chilly October afternoon and the place was pretty much empty - you'll have the beach all to yourself and you can peacefully stroll along the shore, enjoying the white sand and the beauty of the Atlantic merging with the sky above!
